Great food and strong drinks!

I had dinner and drinks during Happy Hour before the NBA Finals game. The chicken sour cream enchiladas were great and the margaritas were great and strong. I will definitely return.

This restaurant has a wide variety of food and drinks. The restaurant is quite large. The selections are some typical Tex/Mex fare as well as steaks and other meat dishes. The portions are very large. We ordered one item and shared it. Overall, well pleased with the selections, service and quality of the food.. Only negative, because the dining area... More

We stopped here without previously planning and were really lucky. The food was great (we both had seafood dishes: tequila lime redfish and Mariscos) and adjustments were easily made to accommodate our diabetic diets AND at no extra charge. Although our waiter was overwhelmed with several demanding tables' the manager pitched in to make sure everyone was well served.

Not true Mexican but very decent TexMex taste. The setting is nice and airy and the service is spot on. We had Wolf who made it an outstanding experience. Try the Chimichanga and the Blackened Red Snapper.

Excellent Mexican food. The chips are very good. Loved the salsa, make sure you try the green dip it is awsome. Our waiter, Chase was probably the best waiter I've ever had. Excellent service and recommendations. Also a pleasure to talk to.

Good food in a busy atmosphere. They have a huge menu. I can't stand onions and it took a bit of discussion of find anything on their menu that did not have them. Finally was able to get come cheese enchiladas, refried beens and a salad. All were excellent.
